Plausibly explores the question of whether a liaison initially based on a carnal assault and fueled by an unquenchable lust has any chance of evolving into a relationship based on intimacy, affection and genuine trust.

You don't like Don't Move, you admire it for daring to be a bit more complex, for caring about characters who are hard to care about and for plowing forward through all manner of ugly business.

Emocionalmente complexo, beneficia-se das belíssimas atuações da dupla principal, falhando apenas na escolha equivocada dos temas musicais e ao exagerar no melodrama.

It has grand flourishes, bold strokes and a soundtrack that swells with emotional Italian and American rock, but it doesn't go over the edge of sentimentality. It's too hard-edged and its acting is too restrained and fine for that.
| Original Score: 3/4

It's behind the camera where Castellitto does his best work. He immediately pulls you into the story and when it's over you don't want to move.

A full-bodied, all-stops-out love story with a wrenching impact that makes most of today's screen romances seem undernourished by comparison.

Cruz gives a daring performance, for more reasons than her willingness to adopt a look that resembles a beat-up Chihuahua.
